If I remember correctly it was because he signed on to do something like 8 films.

Many Thanks. I wish he could've continued in the role. He had such a commanding presence and really knew how to give Friday and Romero a verbal kick in the pants to get a case solved.

I have heard that as well, The only problem was he needed to go from 300+ pounds down to less than 200. He did so and the films that were made were not so sucessful. A few years later He became Perry Mason and the rest is history.
